Car break-ins put locals on edge

A SPATE of car break-ins is putting Coffs Coast residents on edge.

The incidents have prompted a police plea for car owners not to leave valuables in their vehicles and to lock up at all times.

Hoodlums broke into a white Ford Falcon ute in Marina Drive, Coffs Harbour, between 8.45am and 10.15am on Tuesday and fled with a wallet.

They also broke into a green Holden Barina in Driftwood Court at Diggers Beach, between 9pm on Monday and 10.15am on Tuesday, and stole cash and perfume.

Elsewhere, intruders opened an unlocked sliding door on a white Ford Transit van in Adelines Way, Coffs Harbour, at the weekend.

They rummaged through the vehicle but fled empty-handed.

At Sawtell’s 16th Avenue, louts entered a silver Hyundai panel van between 8pm on Tuesday and 1.50am yesterday but couldn’t find anything of value.

If you know anything about these break-ins, contact Coffs Harbour police on 6652 0299 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
